Chaga fungus and its anticancer effect

3 minutes, 49 seconds Read

In Russian folk medicine, the fungus Chaga is used to treat cancer, most of the stomach and lungs. However, it is considered to be really effective for treating other common diseases such as gastritis, ulcers, and colitis while relieving pain in the abdomen. Sold in Russia, Eastern Europe, and Japan to treat gastric and intestinal diseases.

Chaga extractTo verify traditional Russian folk medicine claims, scientific research has begun. The latest scientific work was started by Dr. Kristi Kahlos, a pharmacist at the Faculty of Pharmacy of the University of Helsinki. Kahlos and her colleagues Chaga Inotodiol were found among the most active ones. The compound betulin was also found. Betulin is actually a compound from birch wood that has an anti-cancer effect. Chaga fungi absorb and concentrate betulin from birch and turn it into a form that we can take orally. Other researchers have discovered active polysaccharides, which can be found in many medicinal mushrooms such as maitake and shitake. These polysaccharides stimulate the immune system. Kahlos and other researchers have found significant anticancer activity in specific types.

The Latin name for this fungus is polypore Innonotus obliquus. It is a northern species that grows not birch, Jovi, and beech trees. Only the fruits of mushrooms growing on birch are considered medically suitable. In this traditional form, it isn’t easy to recognize as a mushroom. Chaga grows at an altitude of between 10 and 30 meters, which is a challenge for people who collect it. The Russians collect them by climbing with ropes. The age of mushroom ripening Chaga is about 25 years old, and then they are the most healing.

More on the Chaga mushroom

A gift from God

Instead of being as soft as other mushrooms, Chaga is almost as hard as wood. It is a unique mushroom. In fact, Chaga is the most nutritionally dense of all trees and growths. Known to Siberians as the “gift of God” and the “Mushroom of Immortality,” this mushroom has been used by humans to support health for thousands of years. The Japanese call it the “Diamond of the Forest” and the Chinese the “king of plants.”

Concentrating on that power, Chaga contains numerous B vitamins, flavonoids, phenols, minerals, enzymes, and it is also one of the world’s densest sources of pantothenic acid. This vitamin is needed for the work of the adrenal gland and the digestive organs. It also contains significant amounts of riboflavin and niacin.

In particular, it is very rich in phenols which are a pigment. These phenolic compounds are known as the chromogenic complex. Chaga can contain up to 30% chromogenic complex. The chromogenic complex is essential for protecting all tissues and is found only in Chaga.

Chaga contains – original minerals and is huge amounts of copper, calcium, potassium, manganese, zinc, iron, and its most powerful ingredient is a special substance known as superoxide dismutase (SOD). This is an enzyme with great potential. Its function is to stop oxidation, especially the free radical toxicity known as singlet oxygen. It is a type of oxygen responsible for oxidation and tissue damage, which results in aging.

Chaga has been certified by the Moscow Medical Academy of Sciences.

Here is what the Russians discovered. They found that certain herbs help your body fight the effects of stress and illness. They called these plants Adaptogens. They discovered that Chaga is the strongest adaptogen known to science. That is why it is the basis for the fight against premature aging and the prevention of serious diseases.

Since 1950, the Government of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), in collaboration with about 1,200 prominent scientists, has conducted over 3,000 experiments involving 500,000 people to study the effects of Adaptogens. An adaptogen is a substance that changes the human body’s response to stress. Soviet secrets have protected the results of this research for 40 years. The Soviet government commanded athletes, astronauts, and other Soviet elites to adapt Adaptogens daily to improve their physical and mental abilities. One of these adaptogens is Chaga. In fact, of all these adaptogens, Chaga is the most powerful. It is now believed that up to 80% of all illnesses are mainly due to stress.
